What are MOLES?

  • Moles are round in shape, plain or raised spots on the skin
  • They are harmless but their appearance can be a cosmetic concern
  • Moles are present during birth but grow and darken with time

What CAUSES them?

  • Melanin gives the skin its colour
  • Over-active melanocytes in the body produce excess melanin resulting in moles


  • Usually, moles are black or brown in colour
  • Some can even be red or pink
  • Moles could also have hair growing out of them
